Please explain where these soundcheck parties are and how to get in.
Sign up for Best Buy Reward Zone... That's where you get them from... I'm not sure what cities will have them... They only gave out 50 pairs of passes on a first come first served basis.

Wow GreenEyes!! Are you sure you weren't on the friggin stage with them? What kind of seats did you have? Your pics are awesome!!:shocked2:
Awe, thanks :) If I was on the stage I would be too busy having a heart attack to take pictures, haha. I was in row 6 on the floor... in the centre.

The camera issue is no problem at all. Last night was my 3rd time seeing them at ACC, and security just checks your bag and that's it. My camera was in plain sight and he just asked me to throw out my water bottle! Weird - you're not allowed to take in water bottles :confused: but cameras are okay!

And there were a ton of cameras in the audience!! So don't worry about it, and enjoy!!
I go to alot of hockey games and anything you go to at the ACC you can't bring ANY food in with you. That's what they are checking for, they want you to buy the overpriced food they sell there

Wow, I'm so jealous - the AFTERPARTY??!! Did I hear correctly that it was at The Lobby? Was it private? :cool:
Yeah it was at the Lobby and it was private. You had to have a blue wrist band. I took a pic of it and the backstage pass:

Really really big pic.

Was it at the venue or elsewhere? Did you have a backstage pass or something? How did you pull that off? Did you get molested?
The after party was at a club/bar thing called The Lobby. I had a backstage pass but that was just for the concert and I had a blue wrist band for the party. My family knows Chloe so...

Okaay here goes my review:

Before the show I stayed at a house which is where Chloe was and the baby. Then we drove to the Air Canada centre and got our tickets. Chloe took us backstage and we hung out in the "Coldplay Family Room" but the guys were getting ready to go on stage obviously, so we didn't see them then. I got to talk to Chloe for a bit about Violet and stuff like that.

Then we went to our seats and we were sitting to the right of the stage. AWESOME seats. I sat beside Chloe and it was soo adorable. When Jonny came over to our side and went down that ramp thing, he was scanning the crowd and then he saw Chloe and he gave her the biggest smile. Awww.

So we rocked out for the whole amazing concert and okay, I don't know why, but I had to keep myself from crying so much. Like when they came on stage I almost burst out crying, I don't know why. And when they played Fix You I almost cried too but I didn't want to infront of everyone haha. It was amazing.

After the show Chloe took us backstage again and we waited around in the family room thing again and then Jonny came out. You wouldn't be able to tell he's some dude in a world famous band. He's so down to Earth and chill. He's shy too, which makes him even more adorable. I was standing with Chloe when he came in the room so he obviously went over to her and I got to shake his hand. He was at my cousin's wedding 3 years ago but I didn't say anything to him because I didn't want to bug him so I was really happy to be able to meet him formally.

Later I saw tons of photos of him with Violet and that baby is honestly the most adorable thing in this world, hahah.

Umm and then Chloe insisted it was okay to get a photo with Jonny because I didn't want to bug him. But he was very nice about it. Chloe even took the picture on his iphone and then sent it to me. O:



K so I'm the most awkward person alive but whatever. There's the picture, and don't mind my face. It kinda wrecks it. xD

Then after that was the after party at The Lobby. I am not a party girl at all and I'm only 15 so this was definitely weird for me. But the whole band eventually showed up and at one point I was 5 feet away from Chris and we made eye contact and smiled at each other. Haha I was too nervous to say anything and he was in the middle of a conversation, so. But it was really cute because the band came in and started hugging each other and Will and Chris were dancing for a few seconds. xD I also brushed shoulders with Guy but he was in a conversation so I didn't say anything.

It was Will's birthday, well technically, because it was like 1am so people brought in cake and we sang him happy birthday.

I just talked to Chloe a lot (who is, by the way, so effing adorable.)

Then Chloe and Jonny were going to go because they wanted to check up on Violet and everything so I said by to Jonny and we both said it was nice meeting each other and they were off!

It was amazing.

Woah! That's amazing!

It's nice that she was so cool about you meeting him.

I remember you telling the story about that wedding you went to a few years ago too. :D
